...Responsible Pet Care Mission Statement

Welcome to RPC

Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills provides a safe and comfortable environment for dogs and cats from Oxford County, Maine that have become lost or have been abandonded.

Responsible Pet Care is a no-kill, non-profit shelter. All of the cats and kittens in our care need permanent homes and are available for adoption. Many of the dogs will be reunited with their owners; but some will require new homes.

Whether you are looking for your lost pet or you want a companion, make Responsible Pet Care the first place you visit.

Picture of Dozer the dogDozer is hoping that 2017 will be his year to get a forever home. This gentle giant needs to be the only pet in the house and live with someone that understands and is knowledgeable about his Mastiff breed. Make an appointment to meet Dozer. If you fall in love we will pack his overnight bag and you can try a sleep-over with him to see if he will fit your lifestyle.


Picture of Hank the catWalk into the Community Room and try to find Hank. Chances are you won't find him walking around the floor or sitting on a shelf. You will have to look in one of the cubicles or in the drawer of the cat bureau. Hank isn't anti-social. He just enjoys being cozy. There is a treat to coaxing him out. Rattle a treat bag and he'll come running.
